When Mike Sacco passed down the orcish proverb “Every orc is worth a dozen,” my world changed. Never had life been so simple, so distilled down to the real truth.

Orcish proverbs straddle the fine line between clever and stupid. Not the bad kind of stupid, mind you; the forehead slap, the solemn head shake, a disappointed sigh are our connotations. Eventually, orcish proverbs began to flow, and the community took part in our Breakfast Topic dedicated to the subject.
